Panel Session on ‘Education, Culture and Learning in Response to Conflict and Protracted Crisis’ at the Annual CIES Conference 2021. Chaired by Moskal, five papers addressed both the lived experiences and actions - in policy and practice - in conflict, post-conflict and UK contexts. A discussant (Odena) offered reflections on common threads and issues to reconsider, drawing on his experience leading The Arts of Inclusion network. Presenters examined youth policies in Colombia and Mexico (Arizpe & Gormally), experiences of doctoral students from Middle-Eastern conflict zones in the UK (Pacheco), skills development of refugees in India (Dagar), Arabic teaching with refugees in Italy (Aldegheri), and workshops with Syrian and Iraqi refugees at a UK university (Moskal). These studies engage in discussions of issues confronting youth in particular, their wellbeing, aspirations, learning and skills development. The papers contribute understanding to education in crises, one of the major global challenges in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG4). Education is crucial in establishing peace-building processes, and for the wellbeing and economic integration of all individuals affected by conflict. Formal and non-formal learning has a strategic role to play in peace building, and promotion of equity and diversity.
